Combine all ingredients in Cuisinart food processor, blend well. Divide into thirds, each third marinates 5-6 boneless chicken breasts, freeze the rest (will get hotter if frozen…). Marinate chicken from 1 hour to overnight before grilling, the longer the hotter. For milder marinade reduce number of habañeros in recipe and/or scrape marinade off chicken before grilling.
